Near-daily news rings out about another mass-shooting incident. It's followed -- as surely as shadows trail setting suns -- by politicians promising more laws to remove guns from the hands of the law-abiding.
Now more than ever is the time for gunowners around the world to remain vigilant and ready to exercise -- and fight for -- their God-given right to self-defense.
Told by the man who relied on his revolver to repel terrorists, armed with automatic rifles and hand grenades, attacking a church full of worshipers; "Reloaded" is a clarion call to those who love liberty -- and Christians in particular. This powerful book encourages readers to contemplate their willingness to protect their families, loved ones and congregations -- both physically and spiritually -- and to stand for righteousness and truth.
Before an attacker is thwarted or a tragedy averted, something more pressing must occur. The war of worldviews -- waged against individuals every moment through weaponized media ...

Almost everyone with a pulse fears death, but not everyone fears life. With crippling social anxiety, I feared both. But after an accidental call to a funeral home during my mid-life crisis trip to grad school, I reluctantly embarked on a journey to explore professions that dealt with death in order to come to terms with my own mortality. The result of this quirky trip is Death Becomes Us, a humorous memoir about what happens when a middle-aged, anxiety-filled, life-avoider attempts to investigate the last taboo of American culture. And lives to tell the tale.
"This is death "lite" and it's an enjoyable, fun read, full of hilarious, touching and telling details as well as vividly depicted scenes and characters who literally jump off the page, regardless of their mortal status." Judge, 24th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards

Trorm Coldstorm is a foreign exchange student come to study magic at the arcane academy. Thing is, he's an orc.
Trorm finds himself facing a slew of stereotypes and misconceptions about who, and what, he is. Everyone he meets expects him to be a dumb savage who's just there to play football. But Trorm is not dumb. He's a skilled wizard in his own right, and when he finds himself embroiled in a dark plot by sinister cultists, he'll show everyone just how intelligent and savage he truly is.
"The thing I like about it most is its amusing reading about humans (mostly, there are other species like elves, beast kin, nagas and whatever, but mostly humans) through the eyes of an orc, along with a little cultural dissection. The orc is smart, though, he's at college studying magic. Someone makes him a pair of glasses that give him a HUD that helps him ...

Anthroposophy: An Introduction is one of Steiner's most important lecture cycles. In it, Steiner begins anew in light of the Christmas Conference, presenting anthroposophy in a language and approach that is fresh, concrete, and even more esoteric. Given the obvious centrality of such a work to anthroposophy, is it astonishing that the cycle has remained out of print for a very long time. The present volume is part of a multi-pronged attempt to make it accessible again. It contains suggested emendations of the two versions available, plus notes, which are not included with the extant translation at all. It was also possible to reproduce for the first time the color plates, which are not available even in the German original.

This is a collection of four introductory pieces by Rudolf Steiner on the thought underlying his threefold social order. We begin with the appendix in which he first framed the idea upon which it is based, the threefold nature of the human organism. Then comes an essay in which he argues subtly that the analogy should be used to train a new and dispassionate kind of social thinking. The third piece analyzes the tragedy of the proletariat, who long for a spiritual worldview that can give their lives meaning, but are instead given a "scientific" orientation that reduces all such views to mere ideology. The last piece is a clarion call for a democratic sphere apart from the economic in which all would be viewed as equal. But in order that individual freedom not be encroached upon, and talents and entrepreneurship should thrive, we need to institute a third, autonomous "spiritual-cultural" sphere.

Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition are the basic cognitive forms of higher knowledge. We might say that everyday thinking is but a shadow cast by the enlivening thinking that is Imagination. Likewise, ordinary feeling is the shadow cast by Inspiration, and ordinary willing is the shadow cast by Intuition. We strengthen our normal faculties through meditation. Eventually, beings penetrate along the paths opened up through this meditation.

Descartes laid the foundation for 17th-century continental rationalism, later advocated by Spinoza and Leibniz, and was later opposed by the empiricist school of thought consisting of Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume. Leibniz, Spinoza, and Descartes were all well-versed in mathematics as well as philosophy, and Descartes and Leibniz contributed greatly to science as well. Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy (1641) continues to be a standard text at most university philosophy departments. Descartes' influence in mathematics is equally apparent; the Cartesian coordinate system was named after him. He is credited as the father of analytical geometry, the bridge between algebra and geometry -- used in the discovery of infinitesimal calculus and analysis. Descartes was also one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution.
The Rene Descartes Collection brings together the finest writings of one of the greatest thinkers of western civilization. The contributions of Descartes ...

Hegel's lectures on the history of philosophy provide very important insights into his philosophy. Yet, this body of work has been largely ignored by Hegel scholars. In a three-volume work, Mehmet Tabak offers the first comprehensive interpretation of these lectures. He follows all of Hegel's specific lectures, step-by-step, interprets their salient points, at times critically, and connects them to the ideas Hegel expresses in his other major works. The result is a valuable and accessible introduction to how Hegel understood other philosophers before him and how he situated himself within the history of philosophy. The present volume covers Hegel's lengthy "Introduction," his lectures on "Oriental Philosophy," and the Greek period extending from Thales to the Socratics.

What do the world's superpowers get up to in their secret underground bunkers?
UNDERGROUND BASES: Subterranean Military Facilities and the Cities Beneath Our Feet, by novelists, filmmakers and independent researchers James Morcan & Lance Morcan, details confirmed and rumored underground facilities in the United States and around the world. Containing rare photographic evidence throughout as well as little-known quotes from key government figures, it makes a compelling case for there being an enormous hidden world under the Earth's surface.
The Morcans speculate that the covert underground infrastructure may be far bigger than anyone has previously supposed and is likely used for the development of suppressed technologies. Their sources include declassified files, university reports, WikiLeaks' documents and interviews with ex-military personnel turned whistleblowers who claim to have worked in "cities below ground".
UNDERGROUND BASES delivers a vast array of facts and theories that ...
